You are going to fail in life but in life, as in baseball, you have got to keep swinging.
My middle man struck out his first two plate appearances in his first game of the season. Moved up a league this year, tougher competition. Was getting down on himself.
I talked to him between innings, reminded him he was going to strike out, he was going to swing and miss but he could not IS NOT ALLOWED to get down about it. Next time get up there and unload, Nose to Toes. He knows what it means.
After being told to take a strike, which he got the first pitch, everything fell into place. You will fail in life in everything you do. Keep swinging.

DISCLOSURE – That is not me yelling at him, it is his coach and we really like him, great guy.
